My new niece is 4 months old already. Oh how fast time flies. My sister-in-law gives me updates thru text messages and photos on Facebook. My niece can roll over now but cannot hold her head up very long yet. That’s good that she’s up-to-date with her milestones. My sister-in-law said she’s giving her rice cereal now. But she is still breastfeeding the baby. My mom said baby E doesn’t like the feeding bottle.
I remember when my little girl was a newborn. She started rolling over at three months. And at 4 months, I started giving her tummy time. Tummy time helps strengthen babies’ chest, back, and neck. The newborn musical play gym and infant activity play mat helped enhance her motor skills fast. She reaches, grabs, and feel the toys in the play gym. That moment I told myself, I should be ready for my child’s curiosity. I missed her newborn moments. But now I am enjoying her toddler stage.
Babies grow very fast. I told my sister-in-law to keep memory of the milestones of baby E by taking photos or videos whenever she gets a chance. Also, I shared with her articles on how to care for her newborn so baby will stay healthy. And I wish I was there to help my sister-in-law care for baby E.
